Publisher Description

"Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful one who taught by the pen, who taught man what he did not know."

The Qur'an, believed by Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1,400 years ago. It is the supreme authority in Islam and the living source of all Islamic teaching; it is a sacred text and a book of guidance that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of the Islamic religion. It has been one of the most influential books in the history of literature. 

Recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, it has nevertheless remained difficult to understand in its English translations. This new translation is written in a contemporary idiom that remains faithful to the original, making it easy to listen to while retaining its powers of eloquence. Archaisms and cryptic language are avoided and the Arabic meaning preserved by respecting the context of the discourse. The message of the Qur'an was directly addressed to all people regardless of class, gender, or age, and this translation is equally accessible to everyone.

Very poor narrator

Terrible adaptation. There was no character in the narration. Sheikh should capture the audience with his voice but this was a drawl with no passion. All the emphasis went on to hellfire. It was very painful to listen to at points. Knowing the Islam I fell in love with & reverted for. If I’d listened to this before taking my shahadah I think I may not have taken it. Alhamdulillah I’m glad & blessed to be Muslim but definitely not a supporter of this recitation. I’m listening in Arabic right now & I feel so much more at peace & spiritually in tune.
